World AIDS Day: "When Dogs Heal"

Dr. Robert Garofalo and Fred

When Dogs Heal is a photographic project that tells the stories of people who believe that the best medicine may not always be found at a pharmacy or in a doctor’s office; sometimes it comes in the form of a four-legged friend.

The project began with Dr. Robert Garofalo and his dog, Fred, who he adopted shortly after surviving cancer and later being diagnosed with HIV. Dr. Garofalo credits Fred for getting him through some of his darkest moments and helping him rediscover peace and joy in his life — things he thought he may have lost forever.
